CULTIVATING EMPOWERMENT THROUGH POETRY

I am From

Leave a comment

I am from the ghetto
I am from the cries of my siblings
I am from the bruises and cuts from blows.
I am from an unfortunate childhood
I am from an abusive and scary childhood.

I am from the blood of my mom
from the lifelessness of the unborn
I am from fights and yelling
I am from millions of rats
I am from an abusive and scary childhood.

I am from drugs and alcohol
from beaten down houses
I am from the boy who cried wolf
I am from sleepless nights
I am from the ghetto
I am from an abusive and scary childhood.
